Tucows Inc. the owner of Enom will be migrating all accounts to Hover. According to the FAQ page below the transfer began in September 2019. Hover has been in business since 2008 and is based in Toronto, Canada.
Hover, like Enom, is owned and operated by Tucows Both during and after the migration, and you’ll have access to a dedicated support team for your domains and mailboxes. The company promises that the migration process will be seamless, with your products and account information brought over by Hover without your involvement.
Here’s what will be staying the same:
Account Information: Your account information will be transferred over seamlessly to Hover including your account email contacts and account information. Management of all of your account information and products (domains and mailboxes) will be moved to Hover.
DNS: There won’t change any of your DNS settings, and you should not experience any downtime.
Domain Expiry Dates: All expiry dates for your domain names will remain the same.
Here’s what will be different:
Control Panel: After the migration, your services will no longer be accessible through Enom. During the migration, Hover will send you your login information to manage your services using the Hover control panel. Any additional domains or mailboxes you wish to purchase can be purchased through Hover.
Domain Pricing: Domain name pricing will vary based on the type of domain you bought. Please see our domain pricing page for details. Volume discounts will automatically be applied based on the number of domain names you own.
ID Protect (WHOIS Privacy): Hover provides Whois Privacy for free on all eligible domains. If your domain has ID Protect enabled at Enom, we’ll continue to provide it after the migration to Hover. Your Whois information will be private throughout the migration.
